Text-Ar Suvarna Lele

The best Architecture comes from a synthesis of all elements that separately comprise a space like the structure , the services , the ecology , the materials used, their mass, the character of spaces and the relationship of the forms. To understand a space and to reflect its characteristics in the design is the main duty of an accomplished architect, not to forget Client’s requirements. A truly organic creation and a satisfied client is a rare combination. Many of the practicing Architects of present generation are getting awareness regarding this,which is reflected in their design.The interior design of a dental clinic for Dr Ashtekar by Architect Pramod Chaugule,is one of the examples of such a creative awareness. The feel of ethnicity is maintained through the use of appropriate materials. Blending of the perfectly selected materials, colours and lighting, give the area an authentic look of a modern clinic with rustic touch. The entrance passage is simple and inviting with three colourful murals attached to a pale yellow coloured wall with black and bold nameplate having white lettering. Diffused lighting attracts your attention. A rectangular white striped planter box is placed at the corner.

OTHER ROOMS The smaller rooms are also taken care of by giving them the proper colour

The smaller rooms are also taken care of by giving them the proper colour shades, mostly pastels or white. The chosen colours give them a an airy and open feel while taking care of the requirements and the activities performed there. Talking about the lighting, the lighting is done as per the illumination requirement of every room which is diffused at some places and focused at other. The fixtures used are very modern and attractive but simple in form.Lighting is thought about for very inch of the rooms. The germ of an interesting design does not lie in creating a flashy or eye catching effect without a purpose but creating a meaningful and lively space by understanding the space, its requirements and last but not least the clients requirements, as the design can’t be created in isolation. Thus a successful blend of all the requirements and ideas creating a satisfactory result for the end user is reflected in Dr.Astekars Dental clinic by architect Pramod which is an example of a very modern design created in a comparatively vernacular background and creating a design with regards to the surrounding.
